Transcript Enrollment, graduation rate and alumni participation were some of the topics UH President and System Chancellor Renu Khator spoke about at the Fall 2010 State of the University Address. Courtesy of Thomas Campbell FALL ADDRESS By Lance Jaramillo In her second Fall Address, UH President Renu Khator discussed the recent achievements the University has made to get one step closer to achieving flagship status, the success of the athletic department, the increase in research grants as well as faculty awards and the budget deficits that face the University this year. Focusing on the positives, Khator proudly boasted all-time highs in school enrollment — 38,774 for the fall semester, a 6-year graduation rate above 45 percent and total research expenditures that amount close to $99 million while speaking at the Moores Opera House. "The Tier One express train for the University of Houston has left the station," Khator said. "It is gaining in speed and it is moving toward its destination." Khator added that the increase in graduation rate by 10 percent in just a year's time was highly due to the nine-point student success plans that include a living-learning environment on campus, like the new freshman housing, Cougar Village, along with improvements in dining services. "It was clear that we were headed in the wrong direction, or headed in a very slow direction. We had to systematically and intentionally break this pattern (in graduation rates), and we did so by launching a nine-point student success plan," Khator said. "In just one year, the results are spectacular. In 2010, we improved the graduation rate by 10 percent — 10 years of progress in just one year." Khator also spoke on what is next for the University, like a continued commitment to becoming a Tier One institution, increasing the amount of private donations to the University, serving the community and continue to reach out to alumni. "Higher education will change dramatically in the next 10 years," Khator said. "We have a choice: To either be on the receiving end or be on the cutting edge. We will continue to engage our alumni and the community but making UH a nationally competitive university is not an option we make. It's not a choice we make. It's an obligation we must fulfill for Houston — and for Texas." [84] !nside the Pride .
